Pivot Grease Every 4kmi

Recommended Posts

rfmueller

The manual says there's about half dozen pivot points that need lithium grease every 4 kmi.ย  Who does these?ย  If so, any pointers?ย  Pictures are appreciated.ย ย ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

I do.

Most don't.

It's up to you.

I like my controls to be like butter because 8 inchesย at climax is a big deal to me. 8 inches to you, I have no idea.

ย Tips? Keep the bug guts, road muck and smeg out. Proper lube in and the ride is more enjoyable. I use grease in pivots, fulcrums and linkages. Dry lube (silicone or graphite) in cables and throttle tube. I change the grease often to avoid using it as a grinding compound when it mixes with gunk.

I get lubed before every ride so as not to notice those pesky pivot points, ha!ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  I joke but I am one of those guys that waits for such things to tap me on the shoulder and tell me they're starting to get a little dry and then I reach deep inside to summon the strength to open the tool box.
